Nikki Boyd Enters the Deadly World of Counterfeit Drugs to Find a Missing Woman

Nikki Boyd isn't usually called in on homicides; her forte is missing persons. But when a case with two murdered and two missing pops up on a quiet suburban street, she's ready to start the investigation and find missing homeowners Mac and Lucy Hudson. When the first clues lead her to the boat of her friend Tyler Grant--and another dead body--Nikki must untangle what ties Tyler to the Hudsons. The clues pull her into a deadly maze of counterfeit drugs and a killer who will stop at nothing to silence anyone who threatens his business--including Nikki.

Christy Award-winning and bestselling author Lisa Harris puts you right into the action in this fast-paced thriller.

I loved Vendetta, the first book in The Nikki Boyd Files series, and have been not-so-patiently awaiting the release of Missing. Once again, Lisa Harris pulls out all the stops with this heart-pounding suspense that kept me guessing until the final pages. Time stamps at the beginning of every chapter accelerate the urgency to locate Lucy, especially as the body count rises. Nikki Boyd maintains a tough and seemingly unflappable facade as a Special Agent, yet she harbors a loyal and caring heart, and Harris perfectly balances and blends these traits into a respected and engaging character. The twists involving Tyler and his boat are brilliantly designed and executed. In fact, I'm not sure I dislike anything about this novel - except perhaps the fact that it ended far too soon! Don't let the summer wane without reading Missing!
